Lauren Johnson

Cedar Falls, IA

Lauren’s journey to plant-based nutrition began in the garden. Her first experience growing food was at the age of 20, in which she planted a 50’x70’ plot of various fruits and vegetables. That, along with her joining a CSA the previous fall, prompted her to prepare and consume fresh veggies, which were a rare site in her upbringing.

Lauren’s goal is to help others make mindful decisions about their diet and see how it affects them in all dimensions of wellness. She loves making cooking fun, educational, and accessible and enjoyable for everyone!

Lauren is currently obtaining her Professional Plant-Based Certification through Rouxbe Online Culinary School and a Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate through the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies. She reads cookbooks in her free time and will serve a delicious, plant-based meal or dessert to anyone who enters her home!

​You can find her and her cooking demos on her personal Facebook page or contact her via email at laurenj6147@gmail.com.

"Ever since the 4th grade, I struggled severely with a negative body image and poor self-esteem. Once I discovered plant-based nutrition, the guilt of eating quickly started to dissipate.”
